David Bowie Box Set Rock ‘N’ Roll Star! Chronicles Ziggy Stardust-Era


An expansive new box set will chronicle David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust era. Dubbed Rock ‘n’ Roll Star!, the 5xCD/Blu-ray package is due out on June 14th through Parlophone Records (pre-order here).

Notably, Rock ‘n’ Roll Star! contains 29 unreleased tracks, including early songwriting demos, outtakes, alternate versions, rehearsal recordings, and more. Among the featured tracks are alternate versions of “Lady Stardust” and The Who’s “I Can’t Explain,” as well as an unheard version of “Shadow Man.” As a preview, you can stream a demo version of “Ziggy Stardust” from 1971 below.

A companion Blu-ray collects the 2012 remaster of the original Ziggy Stardust album in 96kHz/24bit PCM stereo, plus the album and additional mixes from 2003 in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 as well as the singles, outtakes and alternative versions in 96kHz/24-bit PCM stereo. It also boasts Waiting In The Sky (Before The Starman Came To Earth), a version of Ziggy Stardust which features an alternative running order and four songs that didn’t make the final album. (A standalone version of Waiting In The Sky is being released on Record Store Day.)

Rounding out the package are two books, including a 36-page reproduction of Bowie’s personal Ziggy Stardust-era notebooks. Pre-orders are now ongoing.

Editor’s Note: See where Ziggy Stardust ranks on Consequence’s list of the 100 greatest albums of all time.
